    Thanks for a great camp!

    July 12, 2019: He really enjoyed the defensive drills if you can believe that. He also said he developed a greater appreciation for taking showers. Hey enjoyed the half court three on three league play and he liked five on five as well, just not as much. Thanks for a great camp!

    Your camp was perfect for our team!

    July 15, 2018: Our team had a spark in their eyes and a spring in their step like I have never seen before. They were laughing, talking, excited, telling “camper” stories and complaining about how hard they worked. All good. They were proud of their accomplishments and held “defensive” posture for more than an hour.As for me, seeing these boys with sparks in their eyes and excitement in their demeanor was good for my soul. Your camp was perfect for our team. Thank you to each staff member for their time, care and energy they provided to all campers. Thank you so much.

    I love this camp

    July 29, 2015: I loved meeting new kids and friends from all over the world; this year I had a friend from England. It has been a wonderful experience that I will never forget. If the camp is still around, I would love to send my future kids to this camp if they would play basketball.
